Quake shakes capital Keith Spry Pool closed temporarily due to earthquake damage

By Sharnahea Wilson

Locals were shaken up this week after a magnitude 7.5 earthquake rocked the country early on Monday morning, causing many Wellingtonians to evacuate their homes. GeoNet said the quake, which left two South Islanders dead, was centred 15km north-east of Culverden in Canterbury at a depth of 15km and struck at 12.02am. Continued on page 2. Monday morning’s earthquake caused beams inside Johnsonville’s Keith Spry Pool to fall into the pool.

Quake shakes capital Continued from page 1. There have been more than 800 aftershocks since the initial shake on Monday morning and many Wellingtonians were off work due to structural damage in the city. The quake was strong enough to bring down beams inside Johnsonville’s Keith Spry Pool, causing the pool to close on Monday and Tuesday. However, Matt Kilgour from Keith Spry said the damage was not extensive and the pool would be up and running from 6am on Wednesday. Meanwhile, the capital’s CBD came to a standstill on Monday as damage to buildings, roads and footpaths was surveyed. Glass lay scattered across Wakefield St, Featherston St was closed to the public and Wellington’s waterfront sustained a significant amount of damage. Wellington City Council said it had dedicated teams checking on the safety of council buildings, the central business area and other key infrastructure across the city. The council’s chief executive Kevin Lavery said teams were working hard to get the city back up and running as quickly as possible on Monday.

“It is encouraging to see the Wellington community coming together to support each other last night and this morning,” he said. Wellington Mayor Justin Lester said the damage in Wellington’s CBD was largely superficial and the infrastructure held up well considering the magnitude of Monday morning’s quake. Mr Lester said community response to the earthquake had been “outstanding”. “People were self-evacuating from their homes in the city, they did a really good job.” The mayor said Wellington’s buildings, infrastructure, roading network and tunnels all stood up incredibly well. However, he said the reclaimed land along the waterfront proved to be “a real eye-opener” after extensive damage was discovered and ferries were left stranded in the harbour due to damage to the terminal. Mr Lester said damage of some buildings in the CBD was still being checked but he was happy with how Wellingtonians seemed to be coping after the earthquake. “Wellingtonians are a very resilient bunch.”

Wellingtonians well-prepared for earthquake By Sharnahea Wilson

Monday morning’s 7.5 magnitude quake caused severe damage to the concrete along Wellington’s waterfront. PHOTO: Sharnahea Wilson

Wellington City Council community resilience portfolio leader Malcolm Sparrow was pleased with how both locals and officials had coped with Monday morning’s 7.5 magnitude quake. “I travelled to the WREMO office with Councillor Jill Day on Monday morning and some people had been there since shortly after the quake,” Mr Sparrow explained. The northern ward councillor said it was amazing how council staff as well as other officials banded together to help ensure Wellington City was safe after the earthquake. “What surprised me is that so many [council staff members] who have different roles, unrelated to emergencies, have involved themselves in helping one way or another. “Everyone has a part to play.” Mr Sparrow said though many Wellingtonians seemed to be well prepared for a natural disaster, for others the severe quake was a wakeup call. “The longer we go without an earthquake the more complacent people become.”

Photographic exhibition

He said it was a good reminder for people to order their 200 litre water tanks, which are available from the Wellington City Council, as well as emergency packs in the case of a natural disaster. “People just have to always bear in mind that an earthquake can hit at any time… they need to be as prepared as possible.” Mr Sparrow said authorities had done a great job, cordoning off parts of the city and ensuring buildings in the CBD were safe to enter. He said people were now becoming more aware of the reclaimed land on the waterfront that was not “as solid as it might be”. Mr Sparrow said though this caused an issue, otherwise people seemed to be well-prepared. “You try and plan for as much as you can but there are always scenarios you can’t predict.” If anyone has questions about what to do after the earthquake or whether buildings in the CBD are safe to enter they can check out the WREMO website.  Head to for more information or check

Local student wins a prize in national creative competition By Sharnahea Wilson

A unique and personal artwork created by a young student from RewaRewa School has won her a Chromebook for herself and her school, as well as the chance to spend a day with an artist. Year 5 student of Rewa Rewa School in Newlands Capri Wano entered the national Kaboom Poster and Video competition run by NZEI recently, along with 30 of her classmates. The challenge was to create a piece of art work that meant something personal to the students in either poster or video form. Capri’s art teacher Heather Guitry was impressed by Capri’s poster from the start. “Her use of colour was spectacular and her symbolism was advanced,” Heather said. Capri’s artwork was created with paint, blue stickers and pencil and was titled My Whanau. “My artwork Whanau is showing my uncle’s car crash in Taranaki,” Capri explained in her entry to the competition. “This artwork was produced with mountains because there were mounYear 5 Rewa Rewa School student Capri Wano with tains where he crashed. Also, I painted principal Jan Otene displaying Capri’s artwork and the road because he crashed on the road her new Chromebook. PHOTO: Sharnahea Wilson into another car,” she said.

“I also used the Maori symbol roimata (raindrop, a tear) meaning sadness, and the thunder because there was a storm. I used a koru because it is special to me in my work.” Capri was pleased with how her work turned out, she was surprised she took out the top spot in the Year 5 category of the national competition. “I tried my hardest to put all my hard work into it. I am very inspired and I have learnt heaps from my art and by me expressing myself.” Wellington painter, writer and illustrator Bob Kerr judged the competition and was hugely impressed by Capri’s unique work. “Capri shows us that painting can talk about harrowing events.” He said at first Capri’s painting looked abstract but when he looked closely he could see storm clouds and lightening and a crash barrier running through the middle of the picture. “All of her brush strokes were strong and confident. This was fine painting.” Capri was awarded a Chromebook for herself as well as one for the school at a school assembly last Friday. The budding young painter and her art class will also get to spend a full day with a local artist working on a project for their school.

Sunscreen to be handed out to schools The Cancer Society will once again give away 100,000 tubes of sunscreen to schools across the country this summer. This is the third year the initiative has been rolled out, after hugely successful summer campaigns in 2014 and 2015 saw tubes donated to early childhood centres and primary and intermediate schools, to help keep kids safe from the risks of sun exposure. T his yea r, the donation is available again to New Zealand schools that are ac-

credited ‘SunSmart Schools’, or are working towards accreditation. Scho ols show t hey a re SunSmart by making sure shade is available for kids playing outside, having a policy that kids wear hats, having sunscreen available, and being committed to educating the school community about the risks of UV radiation and the importance of skin protection. Fiona Mawley, manager of Daffodil Enterprises Limited, said there was still “a huge job

to do” when it came to educating children and parents about sun protection. “We know that by getting sunscreen into the hands of young ones, we can start to teach sun safety habits to kids, while incentivising schools to become SunSmart at the same time. “It’s so important to us that the kids know how to protect themselves, and by doing so, help reduce the incidence of this awful disease,” she said. “We’d like all parents and caregivers, principals, teachers


and students to encourage their school to become SunSmart.” A portion of the sales from every Cancer Society Sunscreen is used to help fund health promotion activities like the SunSmart school programme, and support those suffering from cancer. More than $2 million has been raised for the charity since 2013.  Schools wishing to become SunSmart accredited can find out more at www.database.

A children’s book about siblings who travel to Wellington City from Levin in 1910 launched in the capital city recently, merging history and adventure. The Viaduct Postcard, written by Kelburn woman Susan Price and illustrated by Judith Trevelyan, tells the tale of Jack and Bessie who travel to Wellington to stay with their aunt and uncle and are supposed to send a postcard back to their mum in Levin. Susan was born and bred in Wellington and has had a love of both children’s books and history. She decided to merge her two passions together when she created The Viaduct Postcard – a story where the places, houses, some characters and even the postcards are 1910 replicas. “The only thing made up is the main characters,” Susan laughed. She said the plot of the story had

been her focus from the start because “you can’t have a good story unless there is something actually happening”. Susan has always had a love for the history of Wellington’s people as well as its buildings. “My grandmother told me lots of stories about her past when I was younger… I was always very interested in history.” To complete The Viaduct Postcard, Susan needed an illustrator because “a picture book is nothing without an artist”. Judith Trevelyan, who was also born in Wellington, has collaborated with many writers and publishers throughout her career, spending many years illustrating children’s books. Though she now focuses more on fine arts, Judith decided to team up with Susan to bring the characters of Bessie and Jack to life, as well as their surroundings in 1910 Wel-

lington. “I enjoyed it very much, I got to know [the characters] Bessie and Jack well,” Judith said. The artist decided to use watercolour which allowed for soft pictures that included fine detail. “I thought the watercolour would suit an old-fashioned, gentle story,” Judith said. Susan said the book would be nothing without Judy Siers of MillwoodHeritage Publishers, who pushed Susan to turn the story from words on paper to a proper children’s book. Susan was delighted with how beautifully the book has been published. Delighted with how beautifully the book has been published. “Credit to Judy.” The official launch for the book took place at Marsden Bookshop and The Viaduct Postcard is now available from all good bookstores.

Newlands practices community resilience By Rachel Binning

Newlands is proving itself to be a resilient community when it comes to emergency preparedness. The irony of a severe weather watch being issued in the middle of the emergency information and expo morning at Newlands Community Centre at the weekend was not lost on organisers and businesses involved in the event. Newlands Medical Centre, Nga Hau e Wha o Papararangi Marae Resilience, Survive-it, Newlands Paparangi Progressive Association, Newlands Civil Resilience Group, Wellington Region Emergency Management and Wellington City Council came together to promote disaster preparedness in Newlands, Paparangi and Woodridge. Part of the morning saw Newlands Medical Centre cope with a simulated emergency situation of having no power or water. The Centre was then sent volunteers armed with different medical scenarios of unconsciousness, lack of needed medication and crush injuries to see how it managed. This was the fourth year running the civil defence emergency simulation. The emergency information and expo information morning, which ran in tandem with the simulation, was about encouraging the public’s

self-reliance in an emergency. Kerry McSaveney from Wellington Region Emergency Management said the public should “not just wait for emergency services to kick off [in an emergency situation]”. Leighsah Rawiri from Nga Hau e Wha o Papararangi Marae had been involved in organising the event since May this year.

Leighsah said the focus this year was on having enough water to survive for two weeks along with food, rubbish bags, medication, a torch and a change of clothing as part of your emergency survival kit. The survival kit needed to include your individual Health Passport and essential personal information in case you are unable to speak for yourself.

Wellington Mayor Justin Lester said it was “great to see community resilience at a local level”. He said Newlands was leading the way in being prepared for an emergency situation. While the organisers were disappointed in low public turnout, due in most part to heavy rain, they were pleased with the amount of information

they were able to give to the public and how the simulation played out – the medical centre passed its test of emergency preparedness.  For more information about getting yourself prepared for a disaster: www.getthru.govt. nz/how-to-get-ready and for the Health Passport: www.hdc. health-passport

Christmas art market comes to Karori By Sharnahea Wilson

The Art and Craft Christmas Market will be the last market for the year held at Karori Arts and Crafts Centre and it is set to be a good one. The market will be focused on artworks by painters, drawers and photographers but there will also be handmade crafts on hand for those looking for the perfect Christmas gift. Centre manger Margaret Taylor said there would be a wide variety of artworks on sale from about 30 different artists and photographers. “There will be abstracts,

prints, photographs and watercolour paintings all for a great price,” she said. She said there would also be “beautiful homemade cards” that have been hand printed and coloured. The market will feature items such as homemade jam, cushions, bags, scarves and other homemade goods that make for great unique gifts this Christmas. Some of the paintings will come framed and Margaret was also hoping to have a professional framer at the two-day market. She said if the framer is not there on the day their information would

be available. The market will be held at Karori Arts and Crafts, next to the community centre, from 11am until 3pm on November 19 and 20. It will be cash only but Margaret said there were plenty of ATMs in the area. The centre will close for the year on December 22 and will reopen on January 12. If you join Karori Arts and Crafts in December, for next year, your first month will be free. Head along to the last market for the year to get some great Christmas gifts or treat yourself to some new artwork while also supporting local artists.

Community patrol promotes ‘safer plates’

The North Wellington Community Patrol team will be helping locals get safer plates next weekend. PHOTO: Supplied By Sharnahea Wilson

The local Community Patrol is taking a step towards reducing car thefts with their Safer Plates day this November. The Wellington North Community Patrol team will be installing tamper-resistant screws for just $5 outside the Churton Park New World supermarket on November 26. All profits from the day, which is supported by the Wellington City Council, will go to Community Patrol to help them watch over the local area. Secretary of the community patrol Cheryl Austin said often plates are stolen from cars and installed on other vehicles when a crime is being committed. “This is a fundraising event for the Wellington North Community Patrol that requires funds to maintain its patrol vehicle,” Cheryl said. She said petrol, as well as the members’

high-viz vests, are ongoing costs for the patrol team and any opportunity to raise funds is appreciated. Cheryl also acknowledged the support of the council, Community Patrols of New Zealand, the New Zealand Police and New World Churton Park. “New World Churton Park has kindly agreed that we can use their car park on this occasion,” Cheryl said. The Wellington North Community Patrol is out in the community on most Friday evenings and some Saturdays, usually driving for up to four hours each patrol. The area covered includes Ohariu, Churton Park, Glenside, Grenada Village, Woodridge, Paparangi, Johnsonville, Newlands, and Ngauranga. Go along to the Churton Park village from 10am to 2pm on November 26 to get safer plates and support the community patrol.

readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street. Question: Were you affected by Monday morning’s earthquake and are you prepared for a civil emergency?

Mikey Javier, Woodrige

Billy Reyes, Johnsonville

“Since we live up on the hills we are more concerned about slips, but we were able to act accordingly. We have stocked canned food and water.”

“I’m still in shock with what has happened all around the country. It is a good thing get ready week just passed and we have been prepared because of it.”

Lorna Wiramanaden, Johnsonville “I’m always prepared but I’m still just very scared at the moment.”

Jaena Venus, Johnsonville

John Rubio, Johnsonville

“The earthquakes, now the flooding, certainly reminds us to always be vigilant and prepared. We remembered to stick with the drop, cover, hold drill.

“I was able to get some extra time off work since my workplace suffered some technical issues. Yes we are somewhat prepared.”

Camilla Gomez, Johnsonville “My kids were scared and I wasn’t able to get to work yesterday. I was definitely not prepared – there was nothing left at Pak’nSave. I will listen to my dad now when he tells me to get prepared.”

EYE ON CRIME In Johnsonville two men who claimed to be from the council were allowed to enter a child care centre after hours by a cleaner for the purpose of checking electrical points. Later it was discovered that cash was missing from a cash box. The council confirmed that they had not sent anyone. A good description of both of the bogus inspectors was captured on CCTV footage. Musical instruments and tools were stolen from a garage in Sheridan Terrace. A blue Ford Falcon drove into a

service station in Johnsonville Road and pumped petrol into the vehicle and then drove off without paying. A good description of vehicle and offender is with the Police. In Newlands a white Mitsubishi Lancer saloon parked overnight in the driveway of a house in Kenmore Street was stolen. An Iphone was purchased by a resident in Colchester Crescent and sent from the supplier by courier. As the recipient was not at home to receive the package it was taken back to the courier

depot. When personally collected from the depot and later opened it was discovered that the package had been opened and resealed and the Iphone had been taken out. A silver Suzuki Swift on a Postie run in Newlands was briefly parked unlocked in several streets, including Baylands Road, Tamworth Crescent and Dress Circle, while deliveries were made. During the absence of the driver a wallet hidden in the glove box and containing bank and club cards, driver’s licence and

“I’m very happy here. I can’t speak highly enough of the staff. I feel at home here I really do.” – Lorna, Cashmere Heights Home resident.

cash was stolen. In Khandallah a white Mazda utility vehicle parked locked on the street in Nicholson Road during the day was broken into. A window was smashed to gain entry and the vehicle was searched, but nothing appears to be missing. In Ngaio a commecial truck parked in a yard in Ottawa Road had its battery stolen. A red Mazda hatchback parked in Waikowhai Road had its driver’s door window smashed to gain entry. The vehicle

was searched but nothing taken. The garage of a house in Trelissick Crescent was entered after offender cut and removed the door lock. Nothing seems to be missing. In Churton Park a blue Honda Civic saloon parked overnight at the corner of Halswater Drive and Pony Grove was stolen. In Crofton Downs a grey Volkswagen Gold hatchback entered a petrol station in Churchill Drive and drove off without paying for the petrol pumped into the vehicle.

A lucky Karori woman will be heading off to Ireland to meet

her new fiancé’s family after winning a $5000 travel voucher. Thanks to Karori New World supermarket, in conjunction

with Karori Flight Centre, Chelsea Parry won a $5000 travel voucher which will see her travel to Europe. Last month Chelsea and her partner Steve Daly got engaged just two days before she was told she had won the New World promotion. “It was the best week of my life,” Chelsea said. Though her fiancé Steve was skeptical about entering the competition, saying “nobody ever wins these things”, Chelsea knew she had to be “in to win”. To enter the draw for the Flight Centre voucher, customers needed to spend $50 or more at New World and fill out an entry form. Ka ror i New World owner and operator Andrew Summerville was delighted the prize went to a local customer and someone who had a great reason for wanting to travel overseas. “The winner couldn’t have been better scripted,” he said. Chelsea has not yet met her fiancé’s family so she will use the voucher to make her way to Ireland before travelling to Germany to visit her brother. “We were hoping to go over at some stage but because I’m still studying it’s hard to come up with the money,” Chelsea said. Chelsea said Steve was “over the moon” when he heard the news, and she was also incredibly grateful to New World for giving her the opportunity to meet her new fiancé’s family. “It didn’t quite feel real,” she said.

Wellington hosts sister city Wellington will play host to our Australian counterparts throughout the week to look at ways of increasing tourism, economic growth and job creation. Wellington will host a large government and business delegation from Canberra which is set to build closer ties between the two capitals, Wellington Mayor Justin Lester said. During the first-ever ‘Canberra Week in Wellington’, from November 14 to 20, Wellington will play host to a delegation including ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr and around 100 other business and government delegates. The week will focus particularly on building connections in the arts, business, innovation, tourism,

sport, and higher education and build plans for the future. “The relationship between the two capitals will move to the next level this week as we find tangible ways to work together around economic growth and job creation and to share intellectual capital,” Mr Lester said. “I am particularly interested in working with our colleagues from Canberra on community services, affordable housing, transport solutions and energy supply; some of those connections are already under way.” The bond between the two capital cities was strengthened this year by the signing of a formal Sister City Agreement in July. The first Singapore Airlines

‘Capital Express’ flight, creating a direct link between Canberra and Wellington, landed in September. The new direct service will provide an additional 110,000 seats each year and boost cargo capacity for exporters in the Wellington region, bringing an estimated $44 million a year in economic benefit to New Zealand. “I would like to thank Canberra for their commitment to Wellington and their generosity in putting on a great schedule of fun and engaging public events this week.”  For more information on Canberra Week in Wellington and the latest updates visithttp://www.

Last chance to have your say Locals have just two more days to have their say on the Wellington City Council’s draft of the new policies around playgrounds across the city. The proposed Play Spaces policy is based on ‘five strategic priorities’ which broaden what the council does to get more people outside playing. As part of this council would be looking at how to work better with schools and the community, how to

promote informal play and how to promote the value of play. Copies of the consultation documents can be found at the Council Service Centre at 101 Wakefield Street and local libraries.  Public consultation closes at 5pm Friday, November, 18. The policy will be finalised in 2017. If you wish to contact the Council direct with any questions, email

Newlands celebrates Diwali festival By Sharnahea Wilson

PHOTOS: Supplied

About 150 people gathered together at the Newlands Community Centre at the weekend to celebrate Diwali through music, dance and traditional food. Diwali is a Hindu festival of lights celebrated every year which spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance and hope over despair.

During the last weekend of the month-long celebration, the Newlands community came together in what local man Selva Ramasami said was a fantastic celebration of culture. Selva, who is a member of the Kurinchi Kumaran Temple based in Newlands, said a wide range of people turned out, from local politicians to members of the local progressive association. “We gave out free packets

of sweets and savouries provided by the New Zealand Hindu Association who organised the event,” Selva said. The event was also coorganised by Radhika Rari of the Sri Chakara Dance Academy. Selva said Wellington Mayor Justin Lester was given a cloak to welcome him to his new role as Mayor and to thank him for his support over his time as a councillor.

International experts to visit Wellington Two international restorative practice experts will be in Wellington this month, sharing for the first time their vast knowledge with kiwi professionals working with children, families and whanau. The UK’s Chris Straker and Ireland’s Jim McGrath will both present at Relate, Resolve, Restore, the 2016 Conflict Resolution Conference and join Family Works Central as part of the organisation’s professional development series. Family Works Central general

manager Julia Hennessy said the professional development series aimed to deliver practical, innovative, inspirational and, importantly, affordable workshops to those working with children, parents and families. “We’re pleased to be welcoming a range of providers to the workshops,” she said. “These sessions are relevant for community agencies, social workers, school staff and social service agencies who deliver parenting programmes.” The next workshop in the series

is Chris Straker’s Restorative Schools workshop on Monday, November 14. During this one-day workshop Chris, who has been at the forefront of the restorative practice in schools movement in the UK, will share his personal journey and experience in restorative approaches to leadership within schools and children’s services. “From Chris’s engaging, interactive presentation attendees will gain valuable insight into the behaviours, language and culture change needed for a restorative

school. This workshop has been popular amongst those working in or around the education sector,” said Julia. Following closely behind Straker’s workshop is Jim McGrath’s ‘Working Restoratively with Families’ workshop on November 17. The workshop will explore the theory behind restorative parenting, the approach needed to work restoratively with families and the development and progress of the UK’s Restorative Parenting Programme.

“New Zealand has been a leader in developing restorative processes. We’re excited to share our knowledge with the local community – we know restorative practices make a positive difference in people’s lives and this workshop will be a fantastic introduction, or refresher, to this inclusive approach,” Julia said.  A limited number of places are still available for both workshops.

New hair salon opens in Churton Park By Sharnahea Wilson

A new hair salon has opened in Churton Park and the friendly team is hoping to get involved in the local community at the same time as giving locals stylish cuts. Daisy Jake hair salon on Westchester Drive officially opened on Tuesday and owner Kerri Cox was excited to get to know the local community.

Kerri previously worked as the manager of Penny Black Hairdressing in Karori and has been a hairdresser for 22 years. Kerri always dreamed of owning a salon of her own so when she saw a hair salon in Churton Park advertised on Trademe she decided to snap up the opportunity. “I’ve been talking about it for a long time… it’s an overwhelming feeling just to be here,” Kerri said as she sat in the revamped hair salon. Two of the previous salon’s staff will stay on but Kerri also hoped to employ some locals. “We really want to be part of the community.” Kerri said she looked forward to helping new hairdressers through their apprenticeships and hoped her salon could be an employment opportunity for locals. “I love sharing my knowledge and my passion,” Kerri said. She said the salon would be focused on being “playful, edgy and unique” and she aimed for all customers to get a personal service. The name Daisy Jake stemmed from Kerri’s own trainer when she was just an 18-year-old apprentice. “He was having a baby and it was going to be Daisy if it was a girl and Jake if it was a boy. “It ended up being a girl and I still call her Daisy Jake to this day.” Daisy Jake is a Joico salon and customers will get 20 per cent off their first Joico product if they get their hair done before Christmas.

Illustrating a smokefree Wellington The Wellington City Council made a bold statement at the weekend, bringing to life ‘gasp-worthy’ smoking moments from the past at a public bus stop in the city. The artistic illustration, commissioned by the Wellington City Council was displayed on a public bus stop on Courtenay Place on Sunday. This activation was part of the council’s next phase of smokefree communications to remind the public about new areas across the city that have been designated smokefree under the Smokefree Action Plan. The new smokefree areas include all public bus stops, Civic Square, the Botanic Garden, Waitangi Park, Council housing, council-operated community centres, pools, recreation centres, building entrances and designated laneways. The Courtenay Place bus stop was chosen as an ideal location to communicate the smokefree message, as a busy spot at all times of the week, but especially at weekends. The art illustration, by The League of Live Illustrators, demonstrated, via a timeline of smokefree events, how attitudes to smoking have

been evolving for a long time and history is filled with great examples of how far we have come. Wellington Mayor Justin Lester said the artwork was a brilliant depiction to show how New Zealand’s smoking culture evolved and the steps that are being taken to make Wellington smokefree. “Wellington already has the lowest rate of smoking in New Zealand at just 10 per cent and we are committed to reaching the goal of being a smokefree city by 2025. We want everyone to do their bit to get there.” The Council’s social development portfolio leader, councillor Brian Dawson, said as an ex-smoker he knew it was a lot easier to quit if smoking is less visible. “Our research shows that most people who smoke want to quit. The council’s Smokefree Action Plan is about giving our citizens the resources they need to make healthier choices.”  plans-policies-and-bylaws/policies/smokefreewellington-action-plan

OUT& Asian cultures about come to PHOTOS: Supplied

Marsden School

By Sharnahea Wilson

Marsden School students dressed to impress at Asia Day last week.

Students get creative to celebrate Asian cultures.

Sushi was a fan favouite last week.

These students were big fans of Asia Day.

Asia Day at Samuel Marsden Collegiate School in Karori was enjoyed by students and staff alike last week. Last Tuesday, with funding from the Asia New Zealand Foundation, year 7 to 10 students took part in a special ‘Experience Asia Day’. Marsden Head of Humanities Fiona Crawford organised a day filled with different Asian activities for the students to try their hands at. “If we want our students to thrive and contribute towards making New Zealand better, then it is our responsibility to equip them for their future with Asia,” Fiona said.

The day started with a tranquil Tai Chi session in the gymnasium for the whole school including the Primary students, followed by an introductory assembly. Then Year 7 to 10 students broke off into different sessions and activities including Judo, spring roll, sushi, dumpling and curry making, Shibori indigo dying, Manga and Gondo art, Malaysian Batik, Indonesian Angklung (bamboo instruments), Chinese Tangrams, Kung Fu, 3D Origami, abacus making, language learning, henna painting, sari dressing, lantern making and much more. Altogether 11 Asian countries were represented during the day.

The sunny weather allowed for creative chalk drawings.

Delicious spring rolls were enjoyed by all.

Young chefs are inspired by Asian spices.

Students use ink to replicate Pandas on Asia Day.

The Marsden girls are proud of their Asia Day creations.

Our summer pools were built by us. Blends in well did cause no fuss. With hydro slide will cause a splash. And to it many people dash. Through native bush we twist and wiggle. From the children brings a giggle. Severn days a week the place is open. Hot summer days we all are hopen!

Local cricketers to show Registrations open for 40th Round the Bays fun run their skills at annual Zone tournament Junior Cricket in the northern suburbs is as strong as ever with seven players from the Johnsonville Cricket Club selected to join members of the Onslow Junior Cricket Club’s Premier side in representing Wellington North in the annual Year 8 Zone tournament. The combined clubs make up the Northern Zone team to play 40 Overs matches each Sunday through to December 18. Their opponents will be teams representing Upper Hutt, Lower Hutt, North City, Wellington South, and Wellington West. Johnsonville Cricket Club manager Rick Mudgway was optimistic about the team’s chances in the competition. “The Johnsonville premier boys’ team has won the competition the last two seasons and the strongest opposition is the Onslow club so combined they make a very formidable team. “I think it illustrates the strength of junior cricket in the northern suburbs and it’s a good sign generally for cricket in this neck of the woods,” he said. Mudgway announced the Johnsonville players selected are: Matthew Nell, Jayden Gilchrist, Elliot Seddon, Anthony Kendrew, Daniel Stevens, Kevin Weerasundara and Jonathon Cottle. Anthony Tuck, convenor of the Onslow

Junior Cricket Club said the club was taking a different approach to selecting players. “We will be using our premier side players and will be trying to give everybody a game. This week will be difficult with the Raroa side going to the nationals so we will effectively be missing eleven top players.” Wellington Cricket’s community cricket manager Chris Nevin was hopeful the tournament would be completed despite the bad run of weather. “We are alternating between Kilbirnie Park and Fraser Park and if the weather comes right the grounds will have time to recover.” The teams will play five games on consecutive Sundays starting this Sunday (weather permitting). From the six zone teams two teams of twelve will be selected to represent Wellington at the North Island Year 8 tournament in the Hawkes Bay from January 23 – 26 2017. Meanwhile Rick Mudgway said despite the rain Alex Moore Park should see plenty of runs scored this season. “The grass pitch was relayed last year and the groundsman has put in a huge effort and it should be a very good pitch this season.”

Locals are being encouraged to get their running shoes on and take part in next year’s Cigna Round the Bays fun run, set to take place on the Wellington Water Front. Registrations have officially opened for next year’s round the bays fun run which will be its 40th year running. The Cigna Round the Bays fun run will take place in February and Sport Wellington has already seen more than 800 per cent growth since it took over the organisation of the event in 1999. Sport Wellington chief executive Phil Gibbons was confident the 40th event would be one of the biggest and best yet. “We are focused on working alongside our principal sponsor Cigna New Zealand to deliver an event that allows everyone in the region to come into the city and enjoy the really fantastic experience that we recognise as Cigna Round the Bays,” Phil said. “Once again, the event will be delivered in keeping with our vision that ‘everyone


in the greater Wellington region has a life-long involvement in sport and active recreation’.” Chief executive of Cigna New Zealand, Lance Walker, said the opportunity to encourage the wider Wellington region to get out and get active was central to its sponsorship. “Your health is the most important thing you can protect and helping our communities maximise their health and wellbeing is a huge priority for us.” Cigna Round the Bays will be held on Sunday, February 19 on Wellington’s waterfront. The event will again feature four distance options: the 6.5km Fun Run, Mitre 10 MEGA Buggy Walk, Bluebridge 10km and the Cigna Achilles Half Marathon. Achilles New Zealand will once again be the official charity of the event.  Registrations can be made online at

Sports talk with Jacob Page...

The second coming of Lazarus Those who watched The New Zealand Cup last week saw harness racing history. Lazarus, the $2 favourite won the race by a staggering 10 lengths in a record time of 4 minutes and 53 seconds for the 3200m. The margin and time scarcely believable as the four-year-old made New Zealand’s best pacers look like donkeys. Not many four year-olds enter the $750,000 race; even less win it and none have ever done it in such emphatic fashion. I was at Addington Raceway, as I have been for most Cup meetings since I was a child (that’s about 12 in total). I have not seen such dominance. Prior to the race, I couldn’t bring myself to back it at $2 for the win.

600m from home however and the stallion looked like the greatest thing you’ve ever seen to double your money on. The Canterbury and New Zealand racing public probably have a superstar on their hands. The type of horse that transcends the industry and engages people who are the most casual of horse racing viewers. If Lazarus continues racing in New Zealand until his retirement, he could arguably become more beloved than Terror to Love, who won three consecutive New Zealand Cups. All of that is form and fitness dependent but in terms of laying claim to such accolades, Lazarus certainly made his intentions clear and he now has the harness racing world at his hooves.
